What is hazardous waste?
Hazardous waste is defined as anything that has the potential to be harmful to people or the environment. The list of items classed as hazardous is extremely far reaching and it isn’t always easy to tell which items and substances are, and are not, in the classification. Indeed, in a growing number of circumstances substances and liquids may have been stored for some time or without labels in which case a series of tests may be required to actually identify what the items are.
There are many waste substances and by-products that have the potential to be dangerous for a variety of reasons and there are many instances in which information and advice from an expert is vital.
As Cawleys first ever Technical Account Manager Jon Hayns has 25 years’ experience in dealing with hazardous waste and the multitude of scenarios presented by customers.
For many organisations, the technical support offered by Jon is valuable in providing assurance and understanding of their waste and the requirements placed on them by the relevant regulations. As a hugely experienced hazpack chemist and account manager Jon’s role sees him visit clients’ sites and provide advice and information wherever it is needed. This ensures that hazardous waste is identified correctly, safely stored on site and compliantly removed.
This hazpack provision is a totally new service for Cawleys and solves a multitude of clients’ requirements. Every case ranges in complexity and in many instances, clients will be faced with tricky scenarios and real barriers to the safe removal of the waste in question. This is where Jon can step in and provide a solution to even the most difficult situations.
